Summer reading challenge at your local library

Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019

On Saturday 13 July Telford & Wrekin Libraries will be launching Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the moon landings. The Challenge is aimed at children aged 4-11.


How the Challenge works

  • Children sign up at their local library and receive a Space Chase collector folder
  • Children borrow and read at least six library books of their own choice during the summer, collecting special stickers to complete their folder and incentives along the way
  • Library staff and young volunteers are on hand to advise and run family-friendly activities
  • Children who complete the Summer Reading Challenge are presented with a certificate and a medal

A visit to the library is a great trip out - and is totally free of charge.  Children can explore new authors or revisit some of their favourite books. 


Reading for pleasure and sharing books over over the summer is a fun, relaxing thing to do and will really help your child when they return to school in September.  We look forward to hearing about their reading adventure.
